Overview

Archiving and Records Management - Online Course - CPD Accredited

Welcome to our online Archiving and Records Management training course. All our online training courses, programmes and qualifications are accredited by the CPD Certification Service (CPDUK).

Records are in every organisation. From purchasing receipts to tax documents to communications, they need to be identified and appropriately managed. The method of records management that a company uses should be tailored to fit the needs of the organisation. There are, however, some basic concepts in most records management systems.

Every organisation is responsible for maintaining records. The ability to create, organise, and maintain records and archives is essential to success. Correct records keeping will not only offer liability protection; it will also increase efficiency and productivity. To put it in simple terms, maintaining records and archives will improve the bottom line.

With our online Archiving and Records Management training course, learners will know how to classify records, define and maintain different systems, and develop a keen understanding of the importance of records management.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
